Extend wirless network by using 2 routers and dLAN duo?

Q: Extend wirless network by using 2 routers and dLAN duo?

I recently went to PC world and asked them about extending my network to an office that is situated in the garage beside my house. A phone line is present which is just taken from the same line that is in my house. The office is around 50m from my current wireless modem router (netgear dgn2000).

They supplied me with dLAN duo and a belkin wireless router (n150 - enhanced wireless router). however i do not know how to set this up. would anybody be able to tell me how? i currently have one of the dlan adpaters connected to ethernet port 1 in the netgear router and do not know where to connect the other one. i am also having problems setting up the belkin router. Thanks in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Extend wirless network by using 2 routers and dLAN duo?

OK, I'll take a stab, this sounds like fun.

You have two wireless routers and 2 powerline adapters/bridges that will interface with either USB or ethernet. The first wireless router already has the high speed modem connected to WAN port and is working properly. The second router is not yet configured and the power line adapters have not yet been utilized.

First, connect one of the powerline adapters to the LAN port of the router that already has internet. You'll need a CAT5 ethernet patch cable. Now, plug that powerline deal into the wall. Then, repeat this for the other router. Now remember with this new router you do NOT want anything plugged into the WAN port, furthurmore you need to disable DHCP and configure the same essid name but a different channel.

That should get you going in the right direction.

A:Which one is Better of these 2 Linksys Wirless Routers?

Personally, I think all of the "speed booster" and "turbo" stuff that many manufacturers hang on their products are 90% marketing hype and 10% compatibility issues for other brands of equipment connecting. I'll take the standard 802.11g model anytime.

I have a desktop that I want you use like a server. I have a 'Cricket' broadband air card as my isp and I just picked up a 'Linksys' (WRT160N) wireless router. I have 2 laptops with wireless capability that I wish to connect to run as well. I have installed the software for the router, set the security settings and assigned the security password. The laptops find the signal from the router, but cannot access the internet. Which sort of defeats the purpose. I am network illiterate but have some basic understanding of how networking should work.

Can someone please help me?

Well, I find it interesting that you have a public IP address, which indicates you have no router in the picture. Since most residential ISP accounts only offer a single public IP address for a customer, the first guy that connects gets the connection, any other connections fail.

Buy a broadband router and connect it between that modem and the switch.

is there any way I can use a cisco ea3500 and then use my netgear WGR614 as a wifi extender??

Relevancy 66.65%

Hey All,

I have a question regarding extending my wireless network throughout my building.

I have on hand three Linksys WRT54GL wireless routers and am wanting to use all three to expand the coverage area of my signal.

What I am thinking is, using the latest firmware from Linksys, hard wiring the cable modem to the main router and then configuring each of the other two routers with a different IP, placing them a distance in either direction from the main central router. It sounds logical on paper, but can it be done?

If so, can anyone walk me through the process, or at least direct me to a link where this process is explained in detail?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello everyone I have searched for days trying to find the answer to a problem that I m having and haven t come up with any solution I have Connection extend routers to two range wireless two wireless routers a linksys BEFW S and a d-link DI- The D-Link is much faster but the range is horrible The range on the linksys is much better I would like to set them up so that computers connecting within the range of the d-link can take advantage of the speed but outside of the d-link the computer will connect through the linksys Is this even possible Or would it work to set it up so that one computer connects wirelessly through the d-link and one connects through the linksys That could work too I only have one DSL router and the linksys and d-link routers are sitting next too Connection two wireless routers to extend range each other I have tried connecting the linksys with an ethernet cable from the linksys port for internet to an open port on the d-link and configured them similarly but with separate ips Either way nothing I have done has worked and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a solution Your time is much appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:Connection two wireless routers to extend range

This should work OK I think. I'm not up on wireless, much prefer a bit of wire. I have two ADSL routers on my network (only one connected to my ISP) and all machines hook up OK using DCHP form the connected router. See as you can only have 1 DCHP server the wireless machines will probably need to have static addresses. I would think it will work better if the two routers were not too close.

Hey all,

I am wanting to extend my wireless range out into my garden for the summer, and as my standard router doesn't have enough distance on it, I wondered if I might be able to use the kit that I have currently to help at all...

Ok, so I have a

Netgear WGR617v7 router (current router)
Netgear WNR 2000V2 router (unused)
2 x Homeplugs (just for Xbox in top bedroom)

I am thinking maybe connecting one router to the other via the homeplug might work, but I have no clue how to go about setting it up, settings etc- anyone have any ideas?



A:Extend wireless range- 2 routers + homeplug

One way ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

1. Wireless router on desktop. no need for hub or antenna card there. The printer and desktop should be able to both plug into it as most have at least four wired ports.

2. Either would work, as both are most likely faster than your internet connection.
Go with cheapest and save money. If you have a lot of devices working at 2.4ghz already, consider 802.11a as it uses 5.8ghz instead of 2.4.

3. Any namebrand (netgear,Dlink,etc) wireless router, and preferably the same name brand PC card for the laptop. Same brands generally work best together than Adhoc..

Let's make sure, firstly,that all the required services are running:
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:
• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• Server
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations)
• WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations)
• Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic (or perhaps manual).

If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running. Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.
Then,let's see this:
From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum
Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Then,we might have enough info to give you more diagnostic direction.

I connect to the network just fine. (I have done this both at the hotel I was staying at, and now at my bro-in-laws apartment complex.) I establish connection, and it says the signal is strong. However, when I try to get on the internet, i get the generic "page cannot be found" message. I also cannot connect to me email. I plug in the ethernet cable, and everything works fine.

I know it may be a insulting question, but are you certain that your typing the correct PassWorD (CaseSenSiTivE) and that you have selected the right channel (if that option is available)?

Try refreshing the available networks and click the connect when your is displayed, type in your password and make sure its correct.

A:Cannot Connect To Net After Wep On Wirless Network

Connect to the router with a wired connection. When you recreate the settings do NOT use the passkey option, use the full hex key option. Different brands of equipment generate different hex keys from the same passkey.

You can indeed reset it to factory defaults. If you note, most router manuals tell you not to try to configure them with only a wireless connection, and you're livin' proof they're right.

Yes, but you will need to buy such a service from your mobile phone carrier, which will come with a 3G/4G usb adapter. It's very popular this days. Not sure what you have available in your country. Other wise you will need a wireless router for you home network which will do wired and wireless connections.

So you the laptop does work and connect to an unsecure wireless laptop all OK

So we know the latop works wirelessly OK
Just need to get it connected to your secure network

1) Are you sure you have the correct key ?
2) Remove the wireless profiles you have already setup
control Panel
network and sharing center
manage wireless networks

3) Loginto the router by connecting with a cable- post make and model - and remove the secruity OR check you have the correct key .
4) It maybe the firewall blocking access - unlikely as you can connect to other netwroks

can we see an xirrus screen shot
what firewall do you have or ever had on the PC - like norton, mcafee

looks like you have a good connection via the LAN - is that correct
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.
Direct link to the program is here

{If the above link does not work heres another link,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

A user guide is available here

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

Full details are here

For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

If you are using the Mac OS then use

Oh ok - so they are in the word document - its easier if you post directly into a reply

so the adapter is working - what happens when you try to connect ?

I also don't think I have the corrupted drive file thing (INFACHE or whatever its called) as all my other USB devices worked fine. Anyway, any help in fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Wirless network randomly disconnecting

Hi penguin

Did you find Vista-compatible drivers for that adapter? The most recent official drivers that I can see from Dell are from March 2004, and of course are Win2k/XP drivers.

Decent adapters can be had for $25 when on sale, should things begin to drive you crazy, it might be worth grabbing a newer adapter. Beats uphill battles.

Other than that -- you can try

1) Download CCleaner ---
2) Use CCleaner's Cleaning function to clear temp files (which can be troublesome for some installers if things get piled up).
3) With the Dell TrueMobile 1300 USB adapter plugged in, go into Device Manager, and into the Network category, & uninstall it.
4) Should the device still show in the "Safely Remove Hardware" applet in the System Tray, select it, and unplug it. Also unplug it even if it doesn't show in the Safely Remove list.
5) Use CCleaner's "Issues" function to clear tangles from the Registry. Run the Issue function until CCleaner reports "no issues found".
6) If you found a Vista-qualified driver, install it, then plug in the adapter.
7) Since there's been a lot of coming and going, check in the adapter's "Properties" to make sure that it's wireless settings are correctly set. (They'll need to match your network-type - probably "Infrastructure" and not "AdHoc", and probably set to "Mixed" modes if you travel between wireless networks of 802.11a/b/g/&n types).

Hello can your Laptop recognise the Wireless Connection? You should be able to tell by clicking the Wireless Icon in the Notifications Area. You most likely will also need to provide a password to connect to your Wireless so make sure you know this.

I have gone to Belkin and talked to the tech support, seems like they have a free download link but when the lady answered the phone, she told me to buy 30 days of tech support for 40 bucks???? What type of service is that? And when i told her about the website she was like "I cannot tell you what to download" and I'm said "ITS ON YOUR SITE!!!" She ended up hanging up.

I tried downloading all of them through my friends Network Adapter (not mine) but none of the patches work and the USB ports dont recongize it as plugged in.

Thanks for reading.

I hope you can help!

For the USB problem not sure but try shutting the system down then unplug it and hit the power button, plug back in and then see if it picks up the USB NIC.

If you can connect using a wired connection then try going to Windows updates with the USB adaptor plugged then most likely Windows update will find a driver for it.

If you can give the model number of the Belkin USB NIC then I could look for a driver.

Hi guys, I have a Belkin 332F Basic router which serves as the hub to host my broadband connection as a wireless. Anyway last couple weeks I have been having trouble with the modem with drop outs and refusing to connect to the network.

I've also updated the drivers and that seemed to have failed to constrain the constant drop outs. I was wondering what network diagnostics I can perform so I can figure out what's going on? I also am thinking that it could possibly be a fault with the modem.

What steps can I do in order to try and solve this problem?

Do you guys require any other information? I'll be happy to get some for you.

Hello all this is the first post I have made. I just installed a wireless network in my home. I am using D-link products in the form of Wireless network cards, routers and access points. I am recieving very good signals 90% plus in link quality. Any way I have a server hardwired to the router and am able to access the internet with out any issues. I am running Windows 2K Server on it, and running windows 2k pro on the 5 pcs in my home. I am unable to access the internet from any of the workstations in my home other than the server hard wired. I can ping the router from each of the PC but get no access to the internet. I assume that it is a small issue that I am missing, any help any of you can provide would be most appreciated.


A:Wirless Network Issues D-link

How are your computers' network settings set up? How are the workstations and the server different?

Can you ping the server from workstations?

Two things to check:

run "ipconfig" from Windows command line - the gateway should be the IP address of your router.

run "nslookup" from command line and see what it reports as the server. It should be either your router or the nameserver of your ISP.

Is your Acer laptop 32-bit Win7 or 64-bit Win7? I'm going to guess it is 32-bit Win7.

If it was 64-bit Win7 you'd have no problem right now. My guess is that since your old desktop had WinXP (32-bit no doubt), your Acer laptop was also a 32-bit version of Win7.

I'm assuming that your printer is now installed on your new 64-bit Win7 desktop, and will go from there. You now want to "share" that printer, which is hosted by the 64-bit Win7, so that your other network machine (your 32-bit Win7 laptop) can print to it.

You simply need to install the 32-bit (x86) printer driver on your 64-bit Win7 system, as an "additional driver". The hosting 64-bit Win7 system will thus actually have TWO drivers installed for this printer which you've marked as "shared"... one for its own 64-bit local/USB printing needs as well as for 64-bit client machines (say if you had a 3rd 64-bit laptop wanting to print to the "shared" printer) and a second for 32-bit client machines (say a 32-bit WinXP laptop/desktop, or a 32-bit Win7 laptop/desktop, wanting to print to the "shared" printer).

You need to download the 32-bit Win7 version of your C5180 printer driver from the HP site, and "expand it" so that you can access the INF files for it from the "add additional printer driver' dialog on your 64-bit Win7 desktop system that is "hosting" the "shared" C5180 to the rest of your network's machines. Note that I'm not asking you to "install" it on your 64-bit system. It's meant for a 32-bit system, not a 64-bit system. But the imbedded 32-bit printer driver (INF) file CAN be installed as a second 32-bit "additional printer driver" on a 64-bit hosting system, thus allowing the printer to be "shared" with all network client systems, be they 32-bit or 64-bit WinXP or Win7 systems.
On your 64-bit Win7 system where you currently have the x64 64-bit version of your C5180 printer driver installed:

Start -> Devices and printers -> right-click on the printer, and select "Printer properties" from the popup menu.

Select the "Sharing" tab, and then push the "additional drivers" button. You should then see the x64 radio button checked for the currently installed driver. You should obviously have the "share this printer" button checked, and the name you enter as the "share name" is what will be presented on your 32-bit laptop in order to "connect", which will facilitate printing on the 64-bit Win7 host machine for print requests made from the 32-bit laptop.

Now check the x86 button and then push the OK button (which will light up, to allow you to enter the wizard) to proceed to the next steps.

You'll then get an "install print drivers" dialog window which will allow you to navigate to the folder in which you expanded the 32-bit driver for the C5180 that you downloaded from the HP support site. You need to point to the folder where the "INF" file lives for the printer. Then push OK, and follow the remaining instructions for the "additional drivers" wizard.

When this second driver installation process completes successfully you will then see BOTH the x64 and x86 radio buttons checked. You're now ready to "share" this printer... Read more

I don't know what Gateway uses for a wireless switch. Most times the physical switch or function key is identified by an antenna icon. If in color it will probably be blue.

Fn + F2 is a common key combination. On the front of the laptop, down low where you don't see it unless you stand on your head, is a common place for slide switches. To the upper left of the keyboard is a common location for push button toggle switches.

Let us know when you find it so I can add it to my list.

Also, check that you do not have security software that would interfere. And browse the configuration menu of your adapter to make sure it is not set to throttle down your speed.

A:Extend my network wirelessly

Depending on how far away the other site is, it sounds like you may need an outdoor unidirectional antennae to extend wireless coverage. Then a receiver at the extended site would receive it and provide access to the clients there.

If you plan on sharing just internet access and not local shares though, that makes things slightly more complicated. You can connect the new wireless antennaes directly to your ISPs modem (highly insecure), or you can keep them behind your firewall configured on a different VLAN (secure and better practice).

OK, so I have a really big ask for you guys. What I'm trying to do is get my pc (Vista Home Premium x64, other specs as required) to connect to my new samsung tv via the ethernet port on the back. I already have it linked up to the PC to stream video's, music and pics, but what I'm really wanting is to be able to extend the windows desktop to it, without using video leads as I would require rather long leads. Every link I've found so far either tells you to use VGA/HDMI/S-Video etc. to connect it. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

A:extend desktop to tv using network

Nope. You can't do it that way. You need some device which translates your video output into a protocol which can ride over an ethernet connection and then a corresponding box on the other end to convert that protocol back over to standard video.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, 32-bit, on a hp Pavillion6000 laptop. The network adapter is a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG (it was stock with the computer).

I've never had problems with the network adapter before! It completely stopped working on all fronts. I tried updating and/or replacing the drivers, but there's one error that I keep getting no matter what I do (besides erasing it all together) when I look at it under Device Manager.

"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

That's it! It doesn't work at all! It won't update, I already tried manually downloading / installing drivers from Intel's website, and it's still messed up! I've spent hours trying to figure this out, and I'm completely stumped. Any ideas?

I have a new Siemens router and have set up my old LinkSys router as a switch (set DNS outside the IP range of the primary router, disabled DHCP server, connect LAN to LAN port).

The SSIDs are still different. As a result each device now sees 2 networks and although internet GW is available from either connection, not al resources are shared across the network. There is one driveshare (with wired connection to the secondary switch) which cannot be seen by some of the wireless resources on the same secondary network.

1. How can I set up the NW config such that it is seen and behaves like one physical network, anbd roaming devices pick up the signal from the strongest access point?

2. How can I share resources across the entire network?

I have a Verizon DLS Router D-Link DSL-2750B. I have contacted Verizon and posed this question on their forum, but he only answer I received was a suggestion to move the router to the 1st floor. Great, now I won't be able to connect on the 2nd!

Any help is appreciated.

A:Best solution to boost/extend network signal

The "best" and most reliable way is with wireless access point(s). However, some people don't find that solution acceptable because of the ethernet cable between router and access point(s).

Another way, which you didn't mention, is powerline adapters, which plug into an electrical outlet near the router and the wireless access point, using the electrical system instead of running an ethernet cable. Some powerline adapters include a wireless access point.

Running cat 6 is a project that I would rather not get into.

I would rather not extend the reach of my wireless. I would prefer a wired solution as it places an ethernet drop for other devices I might want to add.

Two options came to mind: Run ethernet over Power lines. I've read good things about Western Digital LiveWire

Then there is the option of running ethernet over coax. My home is fully wired for cable (which we don't use). Actiontec has a product

Yes, you can use as many routers as you want, just remember the network speed will decrease as more computers are added.

Hook up one router to the modem then hook the other routers to it or even in series.

I haven't played much with multiple wireless routers, but we have several wireless routers running at work. I think you just have to make sure the computers within the overlap areas are configured to select one signal.

Also, if you have to run wires a very long distance, you can use routers to boost the signal.

A:How do I network across two routers??

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

Hey Guys been a while since my networking courses.

I have 2 routers 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs right now I have them both on different networks broadcasting different SSIDs. I want to move them both to the same network, instead of one being and I want them all on the network.

My plan is to simply apply the same SSID to both routers and subnet both of them within the network to hand out addresses within their subnet.

Will this allow me to move throughout my house as if it was one network or should I have the second router act as an access point?

What are your thoughts?

A:2 routers 1 network

What is your Internet source(s)? One to each router or are they sharing one line?
If sharing one line, one has to be subservant to the other to function as one address network and if its two lines then even though you might have the same I.P. range they'll still be seperate networks...and confusing.
So for one network, yes, access point and simple switch for one router.
And if its two lines, therefore two networks, you can still communicate to each thru a proxy in the form of a computer with two network cards, one hooked up to each network, and then remote into that computer and network away!
I have two networks, one line, seperated into media and regular/work, so things like NetFlix and network media device playback work a treat without network congestion with the work network. Then I just use a computer with two network cards to transfer, maintain and what not between the two.
